Stress

Stress And Anxiety: People experience stress and anxiety from time to time. Stress is any demand placed on our brain or physical body. People can report feeling stressed with multiple demands placed on them. It can be triggered by an event that makes one feel frustrated or nervous.Β Anxiety is a feeling of fear, worry, or unease. This can be a reaction, and it can also happen in people who cannot identify significant stressors and are not sure of what to do.

Stress and anxiety are not always bad. They help overcome challenges or dangerous situations. Examples of everyday anxiety include worrying about finding a job, feeling nervous before a big test, or being embarrassed in certain social situations. If there were no anxiety, there would be no motivation to do certain things that need to be done ( i.e., studying for a big test).

However, if stress and anxiety start to interfere with one’s daily life, it may indicate a much more serious issue. If avoiding situations due to irrational fears, constantly worrying, or experiencing severe anxiety about traumatic event/s weeks after it happened, it may be time to seek help.
